A nanoparticle (or nanopowder or nanocluster or nanocrystal) is a microscopic particle with at least one dimension less than 100 nm. Nanoparticle research is currently an area of intense scientific research, due to a wide variety of potential applications in biomedical, optical, and electronic fields. Nanoparticles are of great scientific interest as they are effectively a bridge between bulk materials and atomic or molecular structures. A bulk material should have constant physical properties regardless of its size, but at the nano-scale this is often not the case. Size-dependent properties are observed such as quantum confinement in semiconductor particles, surface plasmon resonance in some metal particles and superparamagnetism in magnetic materials. The properties of materials change as their size approaches the nanoscale and as the percentage of atoms at the surface of a material becomes significant. For bulk materials larger than one micrometre the percentage of atoms at the surface is minuscule relative to the total number of atoms of the material.
Open Access journals make a quick review of articles and inform the authors within twenty one days of submission with the help of 3000 editorial team and quality review board which is ready to offer useful and informative results. Most of the peer-reviewed open access journals of OMICS Group is indexed in well-known indexing services like PubMed, Scopus, AGORA, ISI, ProQuest, Gale, Chemical Abstracts, and HINARI etc. Articles published in OMICS Group journals are permanently archived in the respective peer reviewed journals thus providing immediate and permanent access to individual papers and application of the scientific information. So, it is providing chance to get attract more number of students towards scientific research.
